As a reading specialist, I love the idea of the Global Read Aloud. I would love to collaborate with our school's librarian on this. What an opportunity to connect with other readers around the world. Another idea is to combine a book study group at school with blogging; this would eliminate folks having to stay after school to hold book discussions! Hmmmm, I know we have multiple copies of Still Learning to Read by Franki Sibberson in the building!
TodaysMeet was such a fabulous tool for taking notes. The TED talk Happy Maps was so inspiring! I found myself captured by this video and its message about life. I wonder if Frommer's travel books include a happy map!! I wish my GPS (I know, I know, I should be using Google Maps on my cell.) would lead me along the happy map, as well!
